I am going through some personal difficulties right now. I am going to do my best to finish up the swaps I am in and then I have to take a little break for a while. I am sorry if this causes any inconvience to anyone. If I am a little late with things please bear with me, I will get it out as soon I can.
Wife and Mother of 3 children. I work in healthcare. Love animals (I have a dog and a turtle) and gardening and crafting. I knit and crochet, but prefer knitting. Knitting socks with double pointed needles is my favorite hobby, they're just so transportable. I prefer wooden and bamboo needles and hooks, but will also use plastic and aluminum needles for some projects. I prefer soft natural fibers (wools and cottons) to synthetic, I love kitchen cottons like peaches & cream and sugar & cream. I do however like to use acrylic yarn for afghans and items that will be washed frequently. I love to read a good book. Love a good love story or drama and a cup of tea in the winter with my warm knitted socks on my feet:). I also love knitting and or crocheting books and magazines especially interweave knits. Love reading twilight saga books. Stephenie Meyer is my new fave author. I am completely smitten with Edward Cullen from Twilight :D Also, wouldn't mind trying out some of Oprah's fave books. I love all tea and coffee (decaf only please) and all kinds of girly pampering stuff bath and body works, yankee candles, etc. I especially like the flavor of chai tea. I am diabetic, so I ask for sugar free items. I prefer softer scents (i.e. vanilla, apple cinnamon, citrus) to stronger scents like strong perfumes or colognes.
Favorite Hobbies are: knitting, crocheting, repurposing yarn, spinning yarn, painting, drawing, spending time with my children, Thrift store shopping, couponing (I prefer food coupons) since that is what I use the most of, once-a-month cooking,
classic rock, alternative rock, all kinds really except country ( and there is bit of that I like too) Especially Sara McLachlan, The Cure, Twilight, New moon Soundtracks

Vegetable gardening Anything to do with Nature Animals Butterflies Roses Fireflys popcorn Playing board games/card games Inspirational quotes Gardening...Seeds I could use would be mostly fast growing vegetables, cucumbers, asian beans, runner beans, chard, lettuce, greens, etc. and annual flowers , I am not so good at growing sunflowers but the smaller ones do ok here. (Tomatoes, eggplant and peppers take too long to grow here from seed in zone 6) I also prefer things that can grow on vines as I have limited space and I use trellis' and teepees a lot.
I have sent out every swap I have ever been in. I was late a couple of times (for health reasons, but let my partners know about it). If I do not receive anything from a swap partner within a few weeks of the deadline and I have heard nothing from them, I will post your user name here:
NICKEL: Warm my Heart with Tea, a bookmark and Journal Swap (Angeled by Pianoheart, thank you very much!) BEXS: (You pick two tag swap) 2 ATC's & a handmade necklace -She is now fully suspended...(this has been angeled by Kittiekatsweetiepie, thank you very much:)
I happen to think that rating is a very important part of the swapping encounter. If I am not rated after 6 weeks of sending out your item and I have not heard back from you, I will post your user name here:
